Cell phone USB power cord for Garmin Etrex

I read somewhere that my Motorola Razr car power cord will work with my Garmin Etrex Vista HCX. Can anyone verify this?

Smile USB is USB is USB

Not 100% sure, but when I attatch my Cx to the computer via the USB to load maps, data etc, it runs on the USB power rather than the 2 AA batteries. I guess if you had a 12volt to USB connector, it would be the same.

IIRC USB is usually 5v so double check before wiring anything to 12v...

You would think USB is USB (I did) but for some reason my Blackberry charger will not charge my RAZR, but my RAZR charger will charge the Blackberry. I didn't care enough to try to figure out why...
